Magic Johnson on with Leno, no fan of Artest’s new name

Magic Johnson was on the Jay Leno show Monday dodging questions about the lockout because as a Lakers executive he would be paying a heavy fine. Hard to blame him there.

But Magic was talking Metta World Peace — the Laker formerly known as Ron Artest — and it turns out Magic thinks he’s a better dancer and is no fan of the new name.

“Ron, come back down to earth.”

What fun would that be?
